2018 marks the ten year anniversary of Kelbourne Woolens and we are celebrating this milestone with something we have been dreaming about for a long, long time: Our own line of quality, affordable, classic yarns.
In celebration of our ten year anniversary, we are launching a small selection of yarns throughout the year. Each season will bring a new Kelbourne Woolens yarn to celebrate all the things we love most about knitting, crochet, and our community.
We are excited to introduce our third yarn, Mojave to the market. Debuting on the Summer Solstice, this yarn celebrates warm weather and long, sunny days.
Meghan’s love of cellulose-based fibers led to the development of Mojave. It is a DK weight yarn, consisting of five sets of very fine 2-plys. The result is a lightweight yarn that is strong and smooth with great stitch definition. This pima cotton and linen blend is as pleasant to knit with as it is to wear, and, as a bonus, it can be machine-washed!
60% cotton, 40% linen
185 yds (169 meters) / 50 gram skein
22 - 24 sts = 4" (10 cm)
US 4 - 6 (3.5 - 4 mm)
Mojave's color palette is driven by Meghan's love of bright, cheerful colors. Kate did get her fair share of neutrals as well, and some of them even veer towards purple - Courtney's favorite! The end result is a color palette that is perfectly Kelbourne with a summery twist!
The Mojave Collection
Simple, straightforward silhouettes for summer. The Mojave Collection is all about optimizing summer knitting for hot-weather wearing. Featuring six garments perfect for warm summer days, this collection celebrates the long days of summer. From the boardwalk to the desert, sleeveless tanks and summer sweaters are quick to knit and fun to wear.

Happy Summer Solstice!
